Paper Abstract

Two methods to obtain the autocorrelation central value from clipped photon-counting data are presented. They are based on the statistical analysis of the total number of counts in one frame. One of the methods requires a smaller number of frames to provide a good statistical accuracy while the other has a wider intensity range of applicability. These are the first techniques that overcome the problem of the autocorrelation central hole due to the clipping in photon-counting detection.
